. romney is on offense and obama is on defense in the final week. >> eric: obama on defense, he went to new hampshire and only got four electoral votes in new hampshire. he went up there to grab four. is that desperation or protection? >> it's protection. look, this race is going to be very close. everybody recognizes that. could come down to a few votes, a few states. i want to comment on what is going on with the weather. this actually has political implications. first of all, the public is going to be focused on the storm the next three or four days. it will take the focus off the election. it will be harder for the candidates to get their messages out. also, obama has the lead in virginia, 4-point lead. he's ahead in ohio. and to the extent that this -- the weather conditions in those states take the attention away from the election tmay freeze things in place. i think obama is going to win both virginia and ohio, i think it will be very, very close. i think this election's going to go doub to the wire. i suspect you will see both candidates as they readjust their schedule because of th
of you watch your favorite football team play prevent defense and watch the lead dissipate. it happens every time. >> i think he is still the favored to win the race, but we have a candidate, a -- and oil and gas by who will put $25 million in the race. i am told another $5 million or so coming down the stretch in addition to whatever he can raise. that is a big number in pennsylvania, and that can move numbers, and one thing that senator casey has not done purdum gilley well is define himself. and ed has made that comment -- has not done very well is define himself. and ed has made that comment. that is not a great place to be. if mitt romney can do the rope a dpoe and slide in, then there is really no one in the city of philadelphia that is going to energize turn out in the city. this could be a real sleeper on election night. >> let's move beyond pennsylvania. what would you think the romney campaign means to do? we are two weeks out. he may have a little momentum, but he's clearly struggling in a couple of key swing states. how does he conclude the sale? >> i'm not too sure there i
romney's allies went on television in california, they wouldn't be inclined to play defense there. they feel a little bit of vulnerability in those states. and again, if you take the non-battlegrounds, expand the map a little bit to include pennsylvania, minnesota, and maybe michigan, it's a much different calculation. >> karl rove is going to be putting up ads in pennsylvania now, the president is putting up ads in pennsylvania now. >> yep. >> suddenly the keystone state is the final week out up for grabs. why? not up for grabs yet, the polls show it close. but both sides realize that it's not safe anymore. >> what's the big deal to last week, we have enough money to go there. it's not the money on television, that's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to scranton. i suspect if things keep on the current trajectory, the president might have to go to pennsylvania, bill clinton might have to be there repeatedly. every day they're spending in pennsylvania is a day they're not spending in ohio. the republicans believe, not just rove's group, but some of the others
occasions they were told to stand down and to not go in there. defense secretary leon panetta said we simply didn't have enough information for individuals to go into that zen. what do you make of all of this? >> we're in the stage now of conflicting explanation by the administration. we are long past the point of confusion about what happened on the terrorist side. we know it was a planned terrorist attack. this mohammed video explanation which was always foolish is out of the picture. but now the administration is saying different things. this fox report about the cia denying additional help telling its agents there to stand down was contradicted yesterday by the cia itself. so general petraeus is saying it wasn't the cia who denied the request for additional assistance, implying it was somebody at a higher level of authority. and the point you make about defense secretary panetta is also important. jason chaffets, congressman from utah said last night on the hannity show that he spoke with general carter ham, the commanding general of the after infantry -- africon. he said i was never ask
's the economy or the benghazi. where we had this strange story over the weekend that the secretary of defense apparently refuse to obey the president's order, if the president is telling the truth and he instructed his assistants to get aid to benghazi, we're now being told that the secretary of defense canceled that. i think these type of things drag down the president. you notice that he's cancelling his trips over the hurricane. he didn't cancel his trips over benghazi and you have to wonder, between benghazi, the price of gasoline and unemployment, just how much the burden the president is going to carry into this last week. >> he does have a burden. as you point, with a lot of those stories coming out. at the same time, he's built up a lead in some of these battleground states. according to a wealth polls that we have seen across the country. it raised the prospect of governor romney winning the popular vote. losing the electoral college. republicans won't exceaccept th is he right? >> i don't know what he means by we won't accept it. we're a nation of law, we'll obey the law. i think it
dug himself into a hole and he felt there was about it -- >> word in defense of john sununu. he has laid out a formulation that colin powell should be proud supporting barack obama because they are of the semis, which means that, obvusly, john sununu, being white, is proud to be supporting mitt romney did john sununu is, believe me, and i've known him for a long time -- he is writing a new book called "dale carnegie was wrong," and it will not be a bestseller. [laughter] >> everybody has crazy uncles in the attic, and romney has john sununu, and he has donald trump, who is offering $5 million if the president will release -- >> he won't keep senate in the attic. -- sununi is in the attic. >> colby is right, they are putting him out regularly. they are not putting out stavridis or spokespersons that are not speaking with the unspoken. obama had a good line about, on the leno show. >> "it also g- all goes back when we were playing soccer in kenya." probably the best line i've heard the president delivered in the whole campaign. >> unfortunately, people out there will say, "c, i told y
have some defense contractors as well. security is always a big issue. for example, my parents were both world war ii vetrans. you find a lot of veterans in new hampshire. the important thing is to look at the record in comparison to record. president obama has a great record on national security and taking down the leadership of al qaeda, our enemies. people came into our country and killed 2000 of our citizens. at the same time, look at mitt romney in what he is proposing is trillions of dollars in defense spending that the military is not even asking for. he is looking at the old way of conducting military affairs. he is still talking about the ways the navy operated in 1917, as opposed to the security threats that face us today in the country in 2012, and what is the most effective way of protecting our people and our country in 2012. look at the rhetoric, as opposed to the record. if you look of the record, you will support president obama. host: kathy sullivan with the democratic national committee, thank you for your time. we will continue our conversation about the state of
in this country. we have to immediately implement changes. one thing is to look at our defense carefully. when we spend $300 million a day, we can no longer afford that. we have to do it performance review on each and every department in the federal government to ensure we are getting an effective, efficient government, and that technology is used in order to give a return on taxpayers. that is something that has not have been for the past 36 years. >> i appreciate the farm bureau and their support for may. no question, i have always supported them. they do a terrific job for our farmers across utah and across the country as well. i am the ranking republican on the senate finance committee. that is the most powerful committee in the whole congress. ways and means is the most powerful in the house. if we are going to solve problems for the country, if will be that committee that does that. everybody knows that, and that is one reason, a primary reason, that i running again. other than mitt romney. mitt romney has come out in full support of me. he knows that once he is president, with me as chairm
. there are some challenges at the aerospace and defense industries , where classified material is to be protected. but in the engineering field, the banking field come in the telecommunications field, the education field and the consulting and providing its services and maintenance and operations and logistics field, the opportunities there limited only by the imagination. could you elaborate a little bit on how this is going in your view and for boeing in particular for seizing this opportunity and taking saudi arabia and students before they returned to the kingdom, where they expected to know a lot more than actually they would know, unless they have the practical hands-on experience. >> well, it's going well in dealing with the initiative of leadership and american firms we are seeing some success. boeing has a london presence as mro facility there in the airport. so they have a foothold to do that. i mention emd. this last summer and across the company summer high your program for students. they've got a 60 plus year presence there, so bill swanson, ceo clearly understands the value. here's
of hurricane sandy. the defense of defense is setting up emergency mobile gas stations to ease shortages in the new york city metro area and this is the scene in new jersey, the state is now rationing gasoline in 12 different counties to try to ease the lines at gas stations and drivers with odd numbered plates can buy gas today. if you have even numbered plates in new jersey you have to buy gas on even numbered days so that would be tomorrow. and then days after, sandy, ripping through the northeast cleanup continues. we'll be back later. ♪ >> welcome back to the journal editorial report, i'm paul gigot, well, the final weekend before the presidential election and national polls show the race in a dead heat. like many analysts, republican pollster ayers says the key to victory for either candidate rests with independents and he has new numbers to share with us. great to have you back on the program. is the race -- is the race really as tight as the polls seem to suggest? >> it is incredibly tight. just incredibly tight. what's not tight now is the standing among independents who gave
who choose to drive. it is getting longer in new jersey and new york. the defense department setting up emergency mobile gas station. there is a limit 10 gallons a person. mayor bloomberg said it would be a big relief. >> i am optmistic in a couple of days, the shortage will disappear and relatively quickly. it takes time to get the fuel from where it start to where we need it >> that is it what words fopt is hear. quick, quickly david lee miller. so many people there first feeling forgotten and now up close we see what they are dealing with. >>ers are tough and those new yorkers who live in staten island are among the toughest. there is a sense was solidarity and people sticking together in great adversity and there is a special donation center that is now in operation and at this particular location, staten ilaners are helping one another. those who have are giving to the have nots and bringing food and water and clothing. >> and also on staten island. fema and the red cross and other agencies, some of which were critized by authorities for not coming sooner. staten island hardest
of defense canceled that. you notice that he's cancelling his trips over the hurricane. he didn't cancel his trips over benghazi and you have to wonder, between benghazi, the price of gasoline and unemployment just how much the burden the president is going to carry into this last week. >> he does have a burden. at the same time, he's built up a lead in some of these battle ground states. it raised the prospect of governor romney winning the popular vote . >> i don't know what he means by we won't accept it. we're a nation of law, we'll obey the law. i think romney will win 53% 47%. very unlikely that he can win popular vote and not carry the electoral vote. carville has a rule, incumbents get the last poll. ohio, obama would lose 51%, 49%. you go around the country. lots of states obama is at 48%, 49% and james carville always said, you never get if you're the incumbent, you never get a break. >> let's look at the closing arguments from president obama. he was in new hampshire yesterday taking aim at romney's record in massachusetts. >> once he took office, he pushed through a tax cut that
committee what do you make of secretary of defense panetta who says look in terms of the criticism that we didn't send in more troops that you don't put more troops in harm's way when you don't have intelligence on the ground as to what they are getting into. >> i am a member of the armed services committee and i appreciate what mark udall said about not politicizing this. this is about a huge international security issue you that affects all of us and there was a shocking breakdown operationally not to have the security there in the first place and then not to respond to these guys in their pleas for help for seven hours during a fire fight is unbelievable and now we are hearing that the president of the united states based on his own words issued a directive saying that he wanted to be sure those people on the ground were safe and getting what they needed. it didn't happen. this means either that the president's order was not followed. which would be a breakdown in terms of the white house procedure. or, it means the order wasn't issued. we need to find out about this. it is not about po
of defense. we talk with all the governors in the affected states as well as an awful lot of the mayors. i can tell you confidently that the federal government, state government, local government, they are doing everything in their power to coordinate relief as rapidly as we can do so many people who have been devastated by this storm. [applause] as tragic as it is, my mom, god rest her soul, she said, joe, out of something bad, something good will look --, if you look hard enough. my state of delaware was hit. it is a low-lying state. the hurricane went on shore about 30 miles from rehoboth to, in new jersey. my state, where my in-laws used to live, where my brothers and sisters live, they were hit pretty badly. i have a sister in law and family who live in ocean city, new jersey. you saw how badly they were hit. it is kind of amazing -- it is kind of amazing. a call yesterday with all the governors and mayors, it warmed my heart. you had the governor of delaware, the governor of connecticut, the governor of pennsylvania, democrats and republicans, and they were hurt. the governor of mary

and defenses are our most important functions in washington need to say that not every dollar hash wisely spent or is sacred, and then also the same with liberals. liberals need to stay that not every dollar spent in domestic welfare has been well spent and both sides should come together in both areas of the government and budget need to be reduced. >> senator, can you talk a little brit about the so-called fiscal cliff that is looming tend of december? can you talk a little bit about what you think should happen? we have tax cuts that are about to expire, many of them, you know, and we also have, like you were just talking about, the trillion dollar sequestration cuts that will be across the board in both domestic and military spending, hall of these things are happening by the end of the year. what do you think congress should do, do you feel like they should leave everything out of this so we can start reducing our deficit, or do you have any ideas that congress should put in place that you will put forward when you guys go back in next week, two weeks from now? >> yeah. i think the best wa

the federal government has a law in place called the defensive marriage act which basically means that same sex marriage cls ducted in the six states and the district of columbia that have marriage, for example, let's say that a couple gets married in massachusetts and god forbid one of those partner dies. the federal government has a law in place that does not recognize that legal marriage. so for the purposes of things like social security survivor benefits or internment in federal cemeteries or a whole number of laws having to do with tament tax treatment and things like that. that couple in the eyes of the federal government is not recognized as having been legally married. as you can appreciate in the case of death or some kind of family turmoil, that often has led to the emotional and financial devastation to that family. so for federal law purposes at least, the word marriage and the institution of marriage is incredibly important. but really it goes much deeper than that. it's really wanting to be treated as equal citizens under the law. host: our next call comes from illinois. sue,
side up. joel brodsky has been widely criticized for his handling of the drew peterson defense. members of the team had publicly questioned his unorthodox legal maneuvering after peterson's murder conviction last month. jurors said his ill-fated decision to call stacy peterson lawyer to the stand prompted the guilty verdict. he reportedly asked another group of lawyers to take over the expected appeal but earlier this month the former bolingbrook police sgt reversed himself saying joel brodsky would remain in play. at the judge's urging, petersen asked for time to get an independent legal opinion or we could learn what his intentions were, joel brodsky made what had to be a difficult decision to withdraw from the case and stepped down as peterson's attorney for the case. we will hear more coming up on the wgn news at 5:00. >> stay with us. when we come back we're celebrating bulls day here at wgn. >> commentator stacy king is joining us to talk about the new season and what to expect this year.

's a great concern. either the president gave an order that was disobeyed by the secretary of defense to provide support in benghazi or he didn't, and i think people want answers before this election on that, so that's what's going to determine the outcome. we got a great ground game, and i expect governor romney to win a close election in virginia, candy. >> you may need some voters to get to the polls. we wish you well. got a big storm coming before we even get to the election. we'll have our fingers crossed for virginia and maryland and surrounding states. thank you for being here. former ohio governor, ted strickland, thank you as well. >>> when we return, the latest developments on hurricane sandy.  >>> the northeast is bracing for a hit from hurricane sandy. meteorologist bonnie schneider is at the cnn weather center tracking the storm. bonnie, what's the latest? >> right now, hurricane sandy is 575 miles south of new york city and the storm is on the move. as a category one, 75 miles per hour, but it is interesting to note we have some updates to tell you about. first off, the
it, they are murders of my son. >>chris: defense secretary panetta and charlie woods, father of the former navy seal killed in the benghazi attack, disagreeing over the decision not to provide military backup while the assault was going on. we are back, now, with the panel. and now the issues that may swing voters in the final week of the campaign. we will start with libya. there were several developments this past week. we learned, as you heard debated there, the fact that c.i.a. operators on the ground in benghazi asked for military backup and were turned down several times while the attack was going on. we found out that the c.i.a. people on the ground reported that during the attack that a jihad group was taking responsibility, claiming responsibility not attack. what do you make of all of in, especially in the contempt of the campaign? >> what i make of it, it looks terrible although i don't fully endorsed remarks of the grieving father. i understand his grief, i lost a son myself, who not in military combat. i don't think you can accuse the officials in washington who m
sure we fully fund the military to make sure we are going to always have the greatest military defense in the world. >> moderator: okay, thank you. mr. morning? morning: well, i'm clearly the peace through strength campaign. i believe that if you look up something like the pet row dollar and tie the fact that our monetary scheme is tied to oil, you'll see a good part of our foreign policy not just in the middle east, but elsewhere is tie today all the of the worst decisions we've made. and i'm opposed to just about anything arrive seen coming out of washington, d.c. for the last 70 years or so. we've not had a year's peace, we've not had a declared war since world war ii. all of that's immoral, and it's not working. i would say that what we ought to be doing is peace, commerce, healthy skepticism with all nations and entangling alliances with none. >> moderator: thank you. mr. donnelly? one minute. donnelly: well, first and foremost, osama bin laden is dead. in regards to iran, they cannot get a nuclear weapon. it is, it is a nonnegotiable point. what you've seen so far with the sancti

? for example, it seems to me that they are generally satisfied with defense cooperation and have accepted and cooperated on sanctions, but they have considerable concerns about war and considerable concerns about the consequences of iraq and what our policy is in syria, and certainly palestine. so would anyone like to comment about that? >> can everybody hear me? so, i think part of iran's favor is isolating itself from the neighborhood in terms that particularly the gcc states. under ahmadinejad since 2005, the islamic republic has done a lot to scare everybody in the region, through its nuclear pursued, but a range of other action. when you look at iranian policy before ahmadinejad, there was a tendency to seek some sort of cordial working relationship with the gcc states, including saudi arabia, especially saudi arabia. for example, rafsanjani really trying to be some of the tensions between iran and saudi arabia, followed much more policy toward saudi arabia and the gcc states. of course, the historic and ideological tension between the two sides never went away, but ahmadinejad has m
. secretary of defense saying he denied requests for help over that seven hours. >> we'll get to that later. >> but it's a trust issue. >> on the economy, how does it tip the scales, david brooks? >> i think it's been the worst campaign i have ever covered. they are both ending where they started. obama doing a negative campaign. he's got an ad out about romney and the flip-flop and what we have heard. it's almost pure negativity. romney is trying to appeal to moderates and women, which is a bipartisan ad saying i don't care if it's a republican or democrat idea, i'm for that. you know, he has -- it's not who he is or what his policies are. i regard it as a campaign that's not addressed these issues. they are finishing as badly as they started. >> i disagree, david. i think the trust issue links with the economic issue. it's a product. like if you are selling the car, you want air-conditioning, i'll give you that. you want rich, remember all that, i'll give you that. romney is saying you want that, i'll give you that. you want sen tryst, i'll give you that. the auto rescue is a good example
on for seven hours, we now know that secretary of defense saying he denied requests for help over that seven hours. where is the leadership. it's a trust issue. >> on the economy, how does it tip the scales, david brooks and ej dionne in the final nine days? >> i think this has been the worst campaign i've ever covered. i think they're both ending on the same note they started. obama is doing a negative campaign, he's got an ad out which is called "remember" which is about romney. the plutocrat, the flip-flopper on the stump. romney is trying to appeal to ha moderates, to women, which is a bipartisan ad which is saying -- you know, i don't care if it's republican idea or a democratic idea, i'm going to be for that.b and you know so he has shape-shifted. that's not who he is, that's not who his policies are. i regard this as a campaign that has not addressed any of the fundamental issues and they have finished as badly as they started. >> i disagree. i think the election is a fundamental choice and i think the trust issue links closely with the economic issue. romney has run as a product. you
, and who knew about the decision and lied about it, are murderers of my son. >> chris: defense secretary panetta and charlie woods, father of the former navy s.e.a.l. killed in the benghazi attack. disagreeing over the decision not to provide military backup, while the assault was going on. and we're back now with the panel. let's talk about the issues that may swing voters, in the final week of the campaign and let's start with libya, there were several developments this past week, we learned, as you heard debated there, the fact that the cia operators on the ground in benghazi, asked for a military backup and were turned down several times while the attack was going on and we also found out that cia people on the ground reported that during the attack, that a jihadist group, ansar al-sharia was claiming responsibility for the attack. brit what, do you make of this especially in the context of the campaign. >> what i make of it is, it looks terrible. even though i don't fully endorse the remarks of the grieving father, there, i understand his grief. i lost a son myself, but not in milit
, and the secretary of defense sit and watch what happened in real time and not send aid to those people, if everybody understood that is what happened. then they went out and made up a story that it was some unruly mob when it was clearly a planned attack by al qaeda. guest: i think there are a lot of problems with that. there were not watching in real time. i don't want to get into the specifics of the actual and got the attack or anything around it. however, i think there's something important to be done. the full story will be reported. there will be investigations both by the house of representatives and by the state department. republicans to control the house of representatives, by the way. we look forward to those things coming out. whether or not expect a robust surprise, and pretty sure it's not, i'm pretty sure most voters are not paying attention to it and are not taking a close look at it. we will see how it all plays out. -- i am pretty sure it is not the october surprise. host: there's the "washington times" -- guest: this is the nebraska senate seat and senator ben nelson is retiring.
